BUKEDEA: The rotary and Rotaract club of Bukedea in Bukedea district on Friday launched DEAR day under the Theme “Imagine reading as a way of life”.

The DEAR day drop everything and read is nationally commemorated on July 1st of every year as a culture of promoting reading in schools.

Martha Agwang, the rotary club president elect, says the launch commenced in Bukedea township primary school and it’s going to roll out to more than ten schools in the district.

According to Agwang, most pupils complete their education without knowing how to read.

“The purpose of DEAR is to train pupils how to read, some of them move out of school without knowing how to read, so as a club, we improvise schools with the reading materials for example text books and we move to schools to teach pupils how to read together with their teachers”, said Agwang.

Fred Kalasi, one of the rotaract participating on the launch says much as the club is doing its best on training pupils how to read, majority of them are affected since they are out of school.


“We visited the township primary school we had to ask parents to send pupils to school”, said Kalasi.

Stephen Okurut the acting education officer Bukedea applauded for the initiative saying some of the schools lack adequate reading materials for the learners.
